After my baseball coach raped me, I didn't want anyone to know. I felt so ashamed and embarrassed. If I hadn't of gotten injured at school, I might not have ever told anyone, and I might not be alive today because of how much I wanted to not live with that pain anymore. Hopefully you don't take it that far, because what that person did to you does not define you.
It started when I was nine years old. I was too young to realize the depths of which my friends would take me, till one day it escalated so far that they raped me. I wore my guilt with the shame I felt I deserved for a lot of years. But today, I've decided that what they did does not define me. I am a strong, capable, and virtuous woman. And if something like this has happened to you, you can decide the same thing I did, and not let what they did define your future forever.
